This week has been full of ups and downs but it wouldn't be training any other way, right? As I wrote about earlier this week, I dealt with the frustration of injury which also prevented me from sticking exactly to my plan (and forced my weekly mileage to come in low as well).

This normally busy week culminated in probably one of the busiest weekends I've had in a long time. While I feel like I could collapse and that I need a fully body massage, it was all so much fun and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

The outside temperatures are … Continue reading Back At It! plus, gear review: Yurbuds Inspire for Women
I knew this day would arrive eventually... It's time to retire my first pair of hot pink Nike Lunareclipse+2's!
